I just feel better about life when I have a knife in my hand.

I should probably learn to cook, so that sounds less creepy.

Safe in the new place with internet again. It took longer than it should have since AT&T has been acting lame on us. I'll be getting back to this more slowly since I have tons of other stuff I need to do.

...the reason I have gone radio silent all over the internet is because I'm in the middle of moving. I'll be completely in the new place by the 20th and then I should start reappearing soon afterward.

Miss. woman gets shot in head, but makes tea

A Mississippi woman who was shot in the head not only survived but made herself tea and offered an astonished deputy something to drink, authorities said Friday. Tammy Sexton, 47, remained hospitalized three days after being wounded by her husband, who killed himself after he shot his wife. A bullet struck her squarely in the forehead, passed through her skull and exited through the back of her head, authorities said. She is expected to fully recover.

"There's no way she should be alive other than a miracle from God," said Sheriff Mike Byrd of Jackson County, Miss.

Byrd said deputies were looking for Sexton's husband, Donald Ray Sexton, earlier in the week to give him a document ordering him to stay away from his wife. Court records show he was put on probation for six months on April 9 for domestic violence.

He showed up at their home in rural Jackson County in Southeast Mississippi about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday and confronted his wife as a relative ran next door to call police, the sheriff said.

"She was at her bed, and he shot her right in the head," Byrd said. "Then he went out on the back porch and shot himself."

A deputy was greeted by the woman when he arrived minutes after she was shot with the slug from a .380-caliber handgun.

"When the officer got there she said, `What's going on?' She was holding a rag on her head and talking. She was conscious, but she was confused about what had happened," he said. "She had made herself some tea and offered the officer something to drink."

Byrd said the bullet apparently passed through the lobes of the woman's brain without causing major damage. She was rushed to a Mobile hospital by a helicopter.

While such cases may be rare, a neurosurgeon who wasn't involved in Sexton's case said such an outcome is possible. Medical journals also confirm people have been shot in the head with little or no lasting injury.

"There is a space in the brain where a missile could pass without doing any major damage. Is it possible? Yes. It would be rare," said Dr. Patrick Pritchard, an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

The sheriff called the case bizarre.

"You just don't hear of something like this. Somebody gets shot in the head and they're dead," Byrd said.

Google Earth seems to have completely disappeared off my computer. I'm at a loss as to how this could have happened.

I ran across this video of the relentlessly evil Super Mario World hack known as the Kaizo version, in which a Japanese level designer recreates the levels into something beyond the worst nightmares of any gamer. When I was in New Jersey I watched Steve try to BEGIN this, and he made it maybe to the second enemy in the first level. In this video, a guy takes on THE SECOND SPECIAL STAGE (the one you can't even get to without completing the Star Road) on what seems to be a dare from his friends. Now, after watching Steve play for a few minutes, I got the distinct feeling that I was seeing something from a horrific alternate universe, in which formerly pleasant childhood pursuits were twisted into despicable acts of masochism. Now, after seeing this video, I actually feel a developing phobia that one day I will be inescapably FORCED to play this game.

This is what Hell looks like.

My favorite moments include his voice squeaking on "what the fuck!" about 2 minutes in. And, 5 minutes in, when he gets his first glimpse of the goal posts. And almost exactly 6:21 when life's inherent cruelty is excellently illustrated and slightly more than a minute later when HIS BRAIN TOTALLY BREAKS.

The video's a bit long but it's worth watching the whole thing, as frustration drives the narrator completely insane. I laughed. A lot.

(I didn't even touch the other videos on the page. I'm afraid to.)
